March madness

March madness is in full force at the Hunt home. I suggested to kyle that he just go on a little vacation next year so I don't have to have basketball invade my life. It's madness I tell you!!

Logan is loving basketball and is a pretty good shot, even if it is with a soccer ball. Nixon tries
But he got demoted to sweat cleaner upper. He may have tripped Logan in the process and Kyle and I may have grinned and told him good job.

First hair-trim by my wonderful friend Megan.

Naked dinners

Last night we had a naked dinner night. Don't worry only the kids were involved.

Dinner starts out fine with food on the plate, kids clean, mom happy. Then tweedledee decided to pour his food off the plate
and tweedledum decides to follow the example of his baby brother
Then tweedledee decides to start blowing raspberries just to make sure little particles of food fly everywhere
Tweedledum follows
"dee" decides to wipe food all over his face and hair
"dum" wipes it all over his arms and chest.
And that's why we have naked dinners!!

Bad choice

I'm not loving this new bed thing we have going on.

Naps have only been lasting 1 hour.

I have to sit in his room with him or lay with him for him to stay in bed.

My house is a disaster because he isn't taking good naps so I have no time to get stuff done.

Last night he didn't go to be until after 10:30.

I've begged Kyle to put up the crib again......he refuses.

I need the cage back!!!!

It's about time

This kid has been in his crib forever and we finally decided to buy him a big boy bed. We boy bunk beds that can be used as two twins. So far all he wants to do is jump on the bed which is getting him in a lot of trouble today.
So far he loves it, although during naptime he asked for his little bed. To be honest it makes me sad that he isn't in the little bed anymore. Hope switching over to a bed isn't too hard, although i don't tend to him at night time. Kyle may be in for it!
Now I just need to get Nixon out of the pack n play.

Doctors and Disneyland

Nixon had his one year checkup this past week. Basically he is a big boy. He is 26 lbs and 32 inches tall. According to the staff he looks like an 18 mth old, but to me he is still a little baby. Although now I realize that I carrry around close to 30 lbs in my left arm and wonder why I don't have a more muscular arm. He fought the doctor for every part of her examination, but was very friendly wanting her to hold him also. He doesn't love the nurse Florence, because he got two shots (varicella and mmr). But after she gave him a purple lollipop he was happy as can be. We went to Disneyland this week also with one of our friends. Logan has decided these past two weeks at our visits to the park that he doesn't like Buzz, which he previously has been obsessed with, and refuses to go on the ride. He now loves Monsters Inc and is waiting for an "UP" ride.

Uno party

I don't know if you can really call it a party. I decided that I didn't want to be in charge of cooking so I convinced my mom to have dinner at her house and I just brought the cake, balloons, birthday banner, and birthday boy.

Since I didn't have to do much party planning, I decided to make my first shirt. I got the idea from a blog and copied her uno idea also. The first shirt I made was out of one of Kyle's t-shirts that I cut up. It ended up being about a 3 month old size. So I bought some knit fabric and made one that would fit my big baby. It isn't perfect, but I'm pretty happy with it.

I also made him a little cake with uno cards on the side (use your imagination)

He was hesitant at first until he got one taste of frosting.

Then the cake made its way into his eyes and the birthday boy started crying and needed a shower.

I made a tres leches cake also because we were celebrating my sis-in-laws b-day. She didn't know what I was talking about when I told her it was tres leches (in my white accent). She's from Argentina. I think the agreement between all party goers was that it wasn't the best cake....apparently not soggy enough. Next time. Nixon opened up a few presents after he got the frosting out of his eyes.

Logan thinks they are all his presents

The night ended with Nixon tripping on his pop up tent and hitting his head on the coffee table. it was the loadest thumb and was the size of a golf ball. We were supposed to get 1 year old pictures today that I had to cancel.

I ended up waking up every few hours to do a neuro exam on the kid, he hit that hard.
